New York, NY (PRWEB) December 19, 2012
There are a number of people concerned about the end of the Mayan calendar, which falls on December 21. Doomsday prophets and profiteers warn that it could be the end of the world. But for a group of prominent Mexican and American artists, December 21 marks not the end, but a new beginning.
The artists are part of the collaborative modern art project, Mayan Parade, created to celebrate a new era in Mexico, perhaps even a rebirth. The NYC artists have lent their individual touches to over 200 fiberglass sculptures representing Mayan King Pakal, which will be displayed not only in Mexico, but in galleries all over the world.
"We mark this transition, in which the Mayans were talking about a change of era, to show the world a new image of Mexico today, through art, explained Mexican artist and Mayan Parade organizer Karla de Lara.
